Cooperation Summit V
December 3-5, 2014
The EastWest Institute and the German Foreign Office are proudly co-hosting the 2014 Global Cyberspace Cooperation Summit in Berlin, Germany on December 3-5.
Economic growth and international security are increasingly endangered by national policies governing the secure flow of information and data handling. To identify ways to mitigate the negative consequences of growing Internet fragmentation, the EastWest Institute’s Global Cooperation in Cyberspace Initiative is convening policymakers, business leaders, technical experts and civil society.
An invitation-only event, this meeting of international actors aims to coordinate and consolidate progress, showcase results and promote collective action. The annual cyber summits provide a crucial forum for building international, private-public action to foster international cooperation in cyberspace. Breakthrough groups, aligned with the initiative’s objectives of economic and political development, digital security and stability, and sound governance and management, carry forward the program.
Learn more about the summit's seven breakthrough groups:
Key international leaders in governments, the private sector and civil society speak about their unique perspectives on cyberspace cooperation.
The threat to economic growth and international security is being driven by three influences: political and economic concerns, security concerns and weak governance. If these threats are not mitigated, trust in the Internet will erode, dissolving into a fragmented Splinternet that will undermine global economic growth and fuel international instability.
The EastWest Institute is helping to create institutions, processes and policies that reduce the pressures driving Internet fragmentation. The opportunity for the Global Cooperation in Cyberspace Initiative arises from the three aforementioned challenges and three matching objectives of economic and political development, digital security and stability, and sound governance and management. Over the past five years, EastWest’s cyber collaboration has integrated public and private leadership to address several serious challenges in cyberspace, and will continue to do so in Berlin.
By using EWI’s proven process –Convene, Reframe, Mobilize—the initiative aims to achieve its objectives and mitigate the impact of the Splinternet.
